## GATE Syllabus for CSE –GATE Syllabus

**GATE Syllabus for CSE – Computer Science and Information Technology.**

Before preparation for GATE, the applicants should have complete information and knowledge about GATE examination syllabus. So here are some GATE 2017 Syllabus for CSE paper. The GATE exam syllabus of Computer Science and Information Technology has given by IITs and IISC.

GATE CSE paper can have twenty-five questions each holding one mark (e.g., sub-total 25 marks) and thirty questions each containing two scores (e.g., sub-total 60 marks) and fifteen marks will be based on General Aptitude questions. The test paper can have multiple choice and numerical answer way of questions. Please note the Gate exam will have General Aptitude test, and it will define differently in GATE syllabus CSE.
